Prom Tickets
Are Reported.
Near Sell-Out
Members of the sophomore class
are urged to buy their tickets for
the Soph Prom today or tomorrow
since the sale is to be opened to
members of other classes on Friday.
So far the ticket sale has been of
unprecedented magnitude, according
to Wencel Neumani, chairman, be-
ing three times as large as the ticket
sales for the prom last year made in
the same length of time. This in-
dicates a real class spirit on the part
of the sophomores who are support-
ing their own function nobly, being
the only ones responsible for these
sales. It also shows the campus re-
sponse to the new low priced class
dance, for the ticket price for this
year's prom is only $2.00. The at-
tendance at the prom will be very
definitely limited to some figure be-
low the usual Union dance crowd.-of
300, so that at the present rate of'
sale a sellout is expected soon.
The function which will be formal
will last from 9:30 until 2 and 2:30
permission has been granted women
attending it. Tickets are on sale at
desks in the West Engineering Build-
ing and in University Hall and may
be obtained through all members of
the committee. _

Tryouts For Shigter

When chosen, according to Steinle,
she will be a regular feature of all
Union dances. No selection has been
made as yet but Steinle expects to
have a singer by the end of this week.

And The Beanstalk'
A huge beanstalk growing up 16
or 20 feet in the air, a moon in which
the fabled man in the moon actually
appears, and clouds on which a ma-
gician walks, are only some of the
scenic effects which Oren Parker,
'34A, has achieved for the production
of "Jack in the Beanstalk," to be pre-
sented by the Children's Theatre at
Thursday, Friday and Saturday mat-
inees, with an evening performance
Mr. Parker not only has designed
the sets, but has had full responsi-
bility in carrying out the designs.
He has designed scenery for campus
productions since his sophomore
year, and for two years has been
on the staff of the MichiganReper-
tory Players, the University Play
Production group which presents
nine plays during the summer sea-
son.tMr. Parker has also worked
recently with T. W. Stevens of the,
Detroit Civic Theatre.,
In the designs for "Jack in the
Beanstalk" there has been no at-
tempt at realism, the sets being
done in a stylized story-book fashion,
with the effects dependent on line
and color, Mr. Parker said. The re-
sults should be pleasing to adults as
well as children, as indicated by thet
interest shown in Mr. Parker's de-
signs, which are displayed outside thef
box-office at the League.f
One of the innovations in the
scenery is a variation in the color
used in what is known in stage craft
as the tormentor, or drop at the
side of the stage, preventing thel
audience from seeing into the wings.
To make a more gradual transition
from the black of the curtain to the
brilliant colors of the stage, Mr. Par-
ker has used grays of decreasing in-
tensities, thus making a less glaring

The art of being studious and then
beguiling on the one and same date
is a noble one. But any "study" date
envolves just that important matter,
and comes during the week when the
finger wave is at its lowest ebb, so
that everything depends on your
If your task is one of rejuvenat-
ing a winter's wool, your problem is
settled by the ultra-feminine collar
and cuff sets without which no
smart woman can be content. We've
noticed a dainty crocheted array of
angora lace that centers the atten-
tion on your face while the dress
merely aids the general impression.
Navy blue has been selected by the
campus as the most promising of
colors, and we've seen clever models
in many shops close by the diagonal.
For "date" frocks the color is most
admirable and compliments particu-
larly those unfortunate individuals
with a sallow complexion. One design
has a button over surplis, .and fluted
lace tucks around the neck and lines

several speakers from the three pub-
lications telling of the type of work
to be done on each publication. Al-
though freshmen cannot enter activ-
ities until the second semester of resi-
dence, members of Wyvern, who
sponsor the group, think that they
can be learning something about the

they want to do next semester. The

Inhitiation Is ilci
For Swimming Club
"The Swimming Club is an ex-

to Qohog Sutherland, assistant to
Kingfish Root, chief official of the
group. The recent initiation bears
out her words. All the initiates were
dubbed, with names ranging from
swordfish to clam while the spon-
sor, Miss Irene Field was honored
with the pseudonym, Starfish. After
the ceremony new and old members
alike joined in obstacle relay races,
bobbing for corks and other novelties.
The club was formed last year to
encourage swimrA-fin during the win-
ter months. The grup meets at 9
a. m. Saturdays and is coached by
Miss Irene Field, instructor in Phys-
